How Noelle Crombie ’92 Brought Justice to Light Rediscovering Artist Mary Rogers Williams Alice Howe ’13 Mines ’70s Folk for Her Own Vision
Noelle Crombie ’92, a reporter for The Oregonian, writes about her two-year investigation into a series of decades-old unsolved crimes against women that occurred on a stretch of U.S. 20, with all the evidence pointing to one man. She writes, “Ours was a story of police malpractice and justice denied, of a man who counted on society’s blind eye to marginalized people to escape prosecution for decades." American Impressionist Mary Rogers Williams (1857–1907), a highly regarded artist in her day, is being rediscovered. Williams ran the art department at Smith from 1888 to 1906. A recent article in Vogue takes a closer look at Williams and her work. Seen here: San Domenico and Duomo, a pastel completed by Williams in 1907 and given to SCMA by the artist’s sisters.   Visions, the debut album of Boston-based musician Alice Howe ’13, is prompting comparisons to ’70s-style singer/songwriters. In fact, it was produced by Freebo, a songwriter, producer and bassist who has worked with Bonnie Raitt. Ahead of a recent performance in Cambridge, Howe talks about the two coasts and how she is stretching her musical muscle. Photo: Jim Shea.
